German II

Course Description


Full-year course. This course builds on the foundation established in German I. Over the course of the year, students will learn how to shop for clothes in a German-speaking country, how to talk about their emotions and ask how others are doing, learn more about foods and the traditions surrounding them, and they will be able to talk about films they’ve seen. To accomplish these communicative tasks, they will learn the accompanying grammatical structures. Students will use skills in the following areas and build global competency skills for future careers and experience based on the World-readiness Standards for Learning Languages from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages: Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities.
